Closing Cereal Box

You know how you wake up at 6 in the morning sharp, trying to make sense of this whole universe, only to remember there’s a crisp new Reese’s Puffs box waiting on the kitchen counter? Your day just got a tiny bit better, but it may get ruined in a sec after you find the puffs all stale in a mushy cardboard box. You can never be ready to see such a thing.

So when one woman found the answer to her ugly torn boxes, she had to share it and save everyone from dried-out cereal misery. “It’s only taken me 40 years, but I now know the correct way to close a cereal box,” wrote Becky Holden McGhee on her Facebook. Her step-by-step video of box sealing in action has gone viral with 3 million views. More people joined in to share their own folding techniques for what seems like new, happier cereal breakfasts to come.

Becky from Blackpool, UK couldn’t believe it took her so long to find out there’s a right way to seal a cereal box

RED SHOTGUN contacted Becky, the mom of two from Blackpool, UK behind the viral video, who is still overwhelmed with all the stir her box-folding video has created. “It was accidental, I never in a million years thought it would be viewed 3 million times!” Becky said she feels “incredibly lucky, all the comments and feedback has been really kind or funny.”

One of the reasons why the cereal box-sealing hack blew up so fast has to do with how basic it is. Becky told us she couldn’t believe she did not know this, and “the next morning, I thought I’d give it a go with the numerous cereal boxes we have and couldn’t believe how simple it was.” It turns out, the folding “literally takes seconds, looks really neat, and will stop cereal going all soggy.”

And here’s a step-by-step guide on how to do it

Becky’s video has now been viewed 3 million times, proving simple tricks can blow up the internet

At first, Becky posted some pictures of the hack online and her friend asked for a video tutorial. “It made me giggle, but my husband and I quickly did and added it to the post!” Sooner than she knew it, people were sharing Becky’s video, commenting, and joining in with their own techniques for a neat cereal box sealing.

Everyone got excited about the hack and others have been doing it for a long time
